Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Reckoning: finally receives its reckoning!

I'll back you up here - when I first heard this record I was a little taken aback. The guitar sound is twangy, like "rubber bands". No one would compare this to 70s GD, or claim it as good or better... but in hindsight, this is still a cool album to put on... it's Jerry getting back to his roots, in the midst of all those "silky, crazy nights. As I've noted, this is Brent's finest IMO... but they sure could have done without the lackadaisical Monkey and the Engineer - what a piece of drivel.

Thanks for understanding, uj; really felt bad about that one...ie, being negative and all, what with how happy, upbeat and down right warm and fuzzy the Forum has been, who needs that, ya know? But, I yam what I yam, as they say.

I didn't know at the time, even though my DEAD coverband experience should've clued me right away, but it all made a lot of sense when I heard explanations/comments later (it really points out how the techno aspects can have v lg effects, eh? Seriously; something that would seem almost trivial at one level...).
